Heading out to work this morning seems much colder than its ever been before, although winter here feels like late September in the UK.
When passing the Haas Promenade, a car park a view across the city, a common place for Jews and Arabs to have picnics, walk their dogs, as well tourists rolling around on rented Segway vehicles, I noticed something, now in most countries you would think this is the start of a horrible miserable day…
But these big black clouds provided a much need burst of rain. The last few weeks, Jews and Christians have been praying and fasting for rain here….
The Haas Promenade, close (1.5km uphill from my house) also known as the peace park had a special event on the sunday before last.
A worship event was on with several churches and Christian organisations jointly together. There was a speech by the Mayor of Jerusalem, and one of the city’s chief Rabbis, and this was filmed on God TV. There was speakers from different Christian charities here and also a few Arab believers too.
This was a really good event, although I had to leave part way through, as it overlapped with the normal service at my regular church at 6pm.
